I'm trying to get the following stream on my harddrive with gstreamer:

I already succesfully dumped it with mplayer -dumpstream, and can also
stream it with totem-xine. However i prefer to let gstreamer do the

The file is a playlist, that links to another playlist infinitly, but
totem in debug modus tells me:

** Message: on_got_redirect

So i assume that is the real address. However gstreamer doesn't like
it, i'm thinking it might be the mmsh:// bit. libmss is installed of
course as well as asfdemux, and a mms:// i tried works fine. That's
what i've been trying:

gst-launch mmssrc
location=mmsh://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/050216-ee380-100.wmv !
filesink location=test.wmv

It fails immediately, doesn't even seem to connect, i have the feeling
mmsh cannot be parsed. The same command with mms instead of mmsh shows
no error, but doesn't download anything.
